Oh, it is SO NICE to be camping, really camping, again!!!!! The drive from Houston to Fort Smith was ok, it is nice to be out of Houston and the traffic and the smog and the humidity. It is in the low 60’s at 5:30 here in the Fort Smith area, very low humidity, and this COE park is quiet and not even half full. The Corps of Engineers operate a number of parks, many near to the lock and dams they oversee. We are at Due to the senior saver, it only cost $10 per night for electricity and water, with a dump station free to use if you camp. We got to choose our own site, and I got a nice, fairly level one. Many are very, very deep, you could fit a 45’ motorhome, pulling a trailer and a car without any problem….well, except for how narrow the pads are. But hey, we are not complaining because we are camping again!!!
The dogs, Bubba and Skruffy, could not believe their eyes….or their noses. No more civilization, no more of those dreaded spurs which got into their fur, not much grass…but they are not complaining, that’s for sure.
And look at us…no neighbors to our right side, left side, straight across or behind us. I think we will get some good solid sleep tonight, and tomorrow we will spend the day visiting Marcia’s relatives, and getting a little grocery shopping done.

Although I was a bit worried there for a bit when I found out the awning had not come in, you sure smoothed things out with your open honesty to the situation. I am sorry if I came off a bit strong right at first, but we had a very bad experience at the Ford Dealership in Florida near our condo where they had the motorhome in their shop for 30 hours and never even popped the hood....and this was just for getting a tune-up. I was promised it back after one day, two at the most....well needless to say they lied, and that work will be performed in Sacramento now.
Please send the awning to ….
Thanks again, and thank your staff too. Please just let me know you got this email, I did not get it off until we got to the rest area on Highway 59 about 100 miles north of Houston.
Thanks for your business, and I have always lived my life that honesty is the best policy and that holds true with life and work. I appreciate you giving us the opportunity to work on your vehicle. Once the parts get here, I will send it to the address below and will send you an email with the shipping number.See you soon mom….love ya! --dave
